Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for the Treatment of Locally Advanced Pancreatic Cancer and Colorectal Liver Metastasis
This course is available from October 13, 2014 through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on August 26, 2017.
The use of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for the treatment of pancreatic cancer and liver metastases is continuously evolving. SBRT has been shown to be effective for the local control of locally advanced, unresectable pancreatic cancer in both the neo-adjuvant and adjuvant setting. SBRT has also been shown to be effective for local control of liver metastases where the primary disease is under control or undergoing treatment. There is a need to improve therapy for the local control of pancreatic cancer and liver metastasis and SBRT may be a viable treatment option for selective patients. The optimal SBRT dose, fractionation regimens and integration with chemotherapy and biologic agents needs to be further defined to maximize the therapeutic benefits.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists and residents-in-training with interests in SBRT for the treatment of pancreatic tumors and colorectal liver metastases.
